If you thought your favorite fairy tale couldn't get any better, just add cats. Cat comic artist Yasmine Surovec celebrates both with her new book, Cat Vs. Human Fairy Tails. In it, the Little Mermaid becomes human so she can spend time with cats on land, and Sleeping Beauty finally wakes up when a purring cat climbs on her. We're bringing you two excerpts below: Rapunzel and The Ugly Kitten. Enjoy!
